Under the not-so-clever moniker of "Uncle Woody Sullender", WOODY SULLENDER performs improvised banjo music, playing with and against the cultural baggage of the instrument. While alluding to the "traditional" musics of his home states of Virginia and North Carolina, he explores a diverse plane of plucked string music from around the world as well as incorporating punk, noise, free jazz, etc..
He has performed with Pauline Oliveros, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Michael Zerang, Kyle Bruckmann, Carol Genetti, Jason Ajemian, Chris Forsyth, members of the Vandermark 5, TV Pow, and Cheer Accident, among others. In 2004, he collaborated with sound artist Maryanne Amacher, incorporating his banjo recordings into "TEO! A sonic sculpture" which won the Golden Nica at the 2005 Ars Electronica festival. Among other activities, he can currently be heard Sunday nights (Monday mornings) 12am-3pm, DJing on WFMU.
LOCRIAN (members of Unlucky Atlas) build up shimmering walls of drone/noise with guitar, synth/keyboard, harmonicas, tapes and voice. The duo improvises through numerous passages, each emphasizing one of the key elements, keeping each passage vital and vibrant. One key to their style is never letting the crowd fall into a lull, as they know when to bring Terence's vocals to a harsher point or when Andre's almost shoegazey riffs need to go more full-on metal.
Some of you may have heard rumors of the five-headed beast known as Animal Law lurking in the labyrinth beneath Enemy's world headquarters... and while you may have to wait a little longer before that foulness ascends to its throne, we have a special treat for you this Saturday.... XMLVNX is said beast's three headed younger sibling...While it may be smaller than the unstoppable juggernaut that is it's elder brother, XmlvnX is still far more fearsome than any Humbaba or Grendel, crushing the bones of any potential Gilgamesh or Beowulf foolish enough to cross it's path. Sure, you may have been silly enough to already have other plans this Saturday... but do you really want to give up the chance to say you were one of the blessed few to witness it's glorious birth?!?
